SYNAPSE FILMS IS PROUD TO PRESENT... A REALLY BIG BOX OF SHIT... VIOLENT SHIT!
In 1980s Germany, horror film censorship was a huge problem. The government rarely let classic horror films pass without severe cuts when they were released on home video. To combat this unfortunate situation, many German horror fans scraped together a few bucks, rented video cameras and created their own ultra-violent, gory, splatter film epics. Arguably the most famous of these micro-budget German gorefests are the VIOLENT SHIT films from director Andreas Schnaas. Shot on standard definition video cameras, these films are a site to behold. Although they are amateurishly done, choppily edited and loaded with ridiculous low-budget gore, these films have an undeniably offensive charm that has kept horror fans entertained for over 25 years! Synapse Films is proud to present the original VIOLENT SHIT trilogy, along with 2010's VIOLENT SHIT 4.0: KARL THE BUTCHER VS. AXE on DVD for the first time in North America, in versions completely remastered by the original owners. This THREE DISC DVD SET includes the crazy English language dub version of ZOMBIE '90: EXTREME PESTILENCE on a Bonus DVD, along with liner notes and additional VIOLENT SHIT 4.0 Bonus Features.
VIOLENT SHIT - The legend of 'K. the Butcher Shitter' is born in this German DIY video roughie, shot on the low-fi Video-8 format. A demented killer escapes the police and leaves a trail of blood and gore in his wake. Is a Satanic presence behind his transformation into a murderous psychopath?
VIOLENT SHIT II: MOTHER HOLD MY HAND - Set twenty years after the original film, Karl the Butcher Jr. continues his late father's legacy. After receiving a machete as a birthday gift from his mother, Karl Jr. turns into a maniacal killer slashing, chopping, shooting and disemboweling his way through the German countryside.
VIOLENT SHIT III: INFANTRY OF DOOM (aka ZOMBIE DOOM) - A group of friends get lost at sea and land on a remote island, but they are not alone! Captured by Karl the Butcher Jr. and his father, these men are subjected to a sadistic version of 'The Most Dangerous Game' brought on by the Butcher Shitters and their army of metal-masked killers!
VIOLENT SHIT 4.0: KARL THE BUTCHER VS. AXE - The year is 2023, and the world has become a desolate wasteland with gangs taking over the streets. Karl the Butcher Jr. returns from the bowels of Hell, on a mission to kill a new mass murderer named Axe.
BONUS FEATURE: ZOMBIE '90: EXTREME PESTILENCE - Shot for a reported $2000 between the filming of VIOLENT SHIT 1 & 2, ZOMBIE '90: EXTREME PESTILENCE follows two bumbling doctors as they investigate a zombie outbreak. After a military plane crash releases strange chemicals into the German countryside, the dead rise to attack the living! Can they be stopped? Transferred from an original PAL 1' master given to us by Cinematographer Steve Aquilina.
